Political Chatter Is Making You Less Productive at Work - WSJ

Political Chatter Is Making You Less Productive at Work - WSJ: The divisive presidential election might be over, but the distraction hasn’t let up at work.

Employees are spending a substantial chunk of their work hours reading, chatting and even clashing with their colleagues about politics, according to a new survey. BetterWorks Systems Inc., which makes performance-management software, polled 500 full-time working adults from Jan. 31 through Feb. 2 and found that 87% are reading social-media posts about politics during the workday.

More than a fifth read 20 or more posts. That adds up to an average of two hours a day spent talking or reading about politics, with 22% spending three or more hours each day on such activities, the poll shows.
